. this means that israel and hamas had reached an understanding, a kind of exchange of quiet for quiet, and that this will be the first phase of a deal. that will be followed by a second phase in days or weeks or months of much more intense negotiations. those talks will be anchored by and guaranteed by egypt, but with the strong participation of the united states to resolve key demands on both sides which are still out there. the main demand from hamas who wants the block aid of gaza lifted immediately, that is not going to happen, the israelis want an immediate end to all smuggling of arms and to gaza and the sinai, that has not happened either. they have agreed to these demands but need to work that out. >> stephanie gosk, you're in israel where we've experienced -- they've experienced the first bus bombing in years. the first terror attack on tel aviv since 2006. tell us about what happened, the damage, and the victims? >> sure. they're calling it a terrorist attack, andrea, although not a suicide bombing. it is a commuter bus around lunch time today and at least a dozen people inj

attack in the commercial heart of israel in tel aviv, and we know there are various groups praising this operation, but as far as the responsibility is concerned, what are israeli police or military officials telling telling you? >> reporter: they are telling us this dough not yet know. we do notice from the folks dealing with these patients -- much worst scenario in the '90s when buses would blow up and cafes were brown up. the explosives used, according to the people work works with these patients, they had a much smaller explosive. what we've been hearing from the police is they do not believe this was a suicide bomber, someone who got on the bud and blues themselves up, but instead something was left on the bus or thrown into the bus that then exploded they are combing the entire country. we did see helicopters in the air for much of the day after the explosion happened, but they are trying to figure out who was -- as we go forward with trying to figure out whether there's a truce or cease-fire respect this is not a good sign if any of those militant groups inside gaza are respo
and counterstrikes are growing deadlier by the day as israel and militants in gaza turn their region into a raging battlefield. the strike you saw on this building in gaza city happened just hours ago. we were told a senior official from islamicee huhhed was killed in that strike. civilians are paying a price as well. officials in gaza say more than 100 people, many of them women and children, have been killed there so far. three israelis have also been killed. our christian amanpour is joining us from jerusalem. first of all, israel is insisting these are surgical strikes intended to hit militant targets and avoiding civilian casualties. we now have reports that 100 people have been killed in gaza, 800 wounded in the past six days. there's a lot of concern about where the civilians lie in all of this. >> well, suzanne, i think any military expert will tell you that it's not possible in a place that is so densely populated, as is gaza. however, israeli officials do tell us they do have a new set of weaponry, more precision weapons than they did this time -- this time last time around when they wen

40 and the s&p 500 up 18. deadly shooting at israel gaza border at the israel gaza border on the second full day of the cease-fire between israel and hamas. israeli troops shot and killed a palestinian man and wounded 19 others according to health officials in gaza. israeli commanders say crowds of palestinians were trying to dang a fence and cross into israel. soldiers only fired of a palestinians ignored warning shots. corner powell live in jerusalem for us. is this affecting the cease-fire? john, this is normally the time of incident that would undermine a cease-fire agreement, particularly because just so little trust between the two sides. but it appears now third day cease-fire is holding. both sides accuse each other of violating the cease-fire. one person from the palestinian area and gaza was killed and 19 others were injured. but that was about as inflammatory as the language got. and, in fact, the top leader from hamas in gaza seemed to indicate that. >> investigate the case. our information that it is not israeli -- i think some people tried to go inside and to
between israel and hamas. dagen: dan, how does this progress? >> well, it probably ends with a cease-fire, eventually. i dow not that the bus bombing was carried out by hamas. i do not know if you'll get a cease fire over the weekend. what they got was a lot of public support, but not much more than that. connell: you say it may end with a cease fire. say we get that. for the sake of our discussion. then what? how does that affect us and the rest of the process going forward? >> one of the difficulties is the next thing you want is a truce. the israelis are saying are we talking about a truce or a timeout? , want israel to lift the blockade of the gaza strip. they cannot cut off the sure that that will happen. it will be very difficult to get a truce. dagen: how does it impact those tensions now? >> this is an excellent question. what the israelis have achieved is they have not rot international condemnation upon themselves. the interesting reason they did that is because they had this missile defense system set up. it knocked down about 90% of the rockets that hamas had sent him. th
's quiet. let me ask you, though, about the leaflets that are dropped from the sky from israel to basically warn civilians in gaza as a heads-up. look, we are sending a missile you're way, here's where you need to go to stay safe. >> reporter: well, we have seen two different kinds of leaflets. one is sort of a generic stay away from anything affiliated or connected with hamas. and it's a message to the israeli defense forces. and it also says we are trying to only go after hamas and not the people of gaza. what we saw yesterday, however, were leaflets being dropped on the northern part of the gaza strip with very specific instructions for people to leave those areas, how to get out of those areas and take cover in areas of gaza city which are safer. so those leaflets really did spark something of a panic exodus by people from the northern areas of the gaza strip. they flocked on donkey carts, pickup trucks, whatever kind of transportation they could find to this area. and they were put up in schools, but the schools weren't ready. there was no preparations for them to come. so they have le
so much for being with us. i'm carol costello. new flashpoint in the isra israel/gaza conflict threatens to implode today's peace talks. a bomb rips apart a bus in tel aviv, israel's second largest city. 22 people injured and tensions rise again across the region. hamas praises the attack. it's not claiming responsibility. in gaza, streets are empty as civilians brace for the israeli response. so far, secretary of state hillary clinton, the challenge of brokering a cease fire, it grows even more daunting this morning. more on those diplomatic efforts in a minute. first the latest details on that bus attack. sara sidner is on the phone from tel aviv. what's the latest, sara? >> reporter: where the victims of this bus attack are. we know that now 22 people have been injured. some of those were inside the bus, some of the people were outside of the bus. there are two very serious injuries, both of them teenagers according to hospital officials here and they are doing surgery as we speak. what we dough do know is that so far doctors are saying that all the victims are expected to s
